Library Report 



To the Citizens of Enfield: 

As the Enfield Library Association begins its fifty-eighth 
year's service to the community, it is gratifying to find the in- 
terest maintained. 

The circulation for the last year was 10,073 books and maga- 
zines. This shows our library has many patrons, and that there 
is an appreciation of the carefully selected books. 

The total number of volumes in the library is 9,856; non- 
fiction, 4,574; fiction, 3,498; juvenile, 1,784. During the year 
128 books were purchased, 2 volumes were given by friends, and 
26 attractive juvenile books were given by the State, through the 
State Library Commission. 

We have continued, through the agency of the late Mr. Robert 
E. Davis (a native of Enfield) our subscriptions for a large and 
varied list of magazines: Atlantic Monthly, Harper's Magazine, 
Forum, Popular Mechanics, Country Life. Good Housekeeping, 
St. Nicholas, Woman's Home Companion, Scientific American, 
Cosmopolitan, Review of Reviews, Ladies' Home Journal, 
American Boy, Scribner's, American Magazine, National Geo- 
graphic Magazine, Boy's Life, Outlook, Engineering News 
Record. 

The directors would like to pay their tribute to Mr. Davis, a 
loyal son of Enfield, of whom we all were proud. For years he 
cared for the magazine subscriptions in a most efficient and cap- 



34 



able manner. 

As is the usual yearly custom, deposits of books have been 
placed in two of the school rooms. Book reports are given each 
month by the pupils of the Grammar School as part of their 
schedule. The pupils in Grades 4 and 5, taught by Miss Eliza- 
beth Rugg, are reading books listed by the State. Several cer- 
tificates have already been presented to deserving pupils and 
many more will be awarded during the winter term. 

The directors take pleasure in announcing that Mrs. Charles 
X. Downing, who has served as librarian so efficiently, will con- 
tinue in this position. 

Respectfully submitted 

MARIAN T. ZAPPEY, 

Secretary

Report of School Committee 



To the citizens of Enfield: 

Your School Committee submits the following report : 

Nine regular meetings of the School Board have been held 
this year for transaction of business. In June of this year, we 
lost by resignation a very effieent and much liked teacher. 
Miss Frances Singleton, teacher of grades one and two. It 
was with much regret that we accepted her resignation. How- 
ever, we have been very fortunate in securing an able succes- 
sor, Miss Ruth Card of Pittsfield, who is doing good work. 
Mr. Mario Ciccone and Miss Elizabeth Rugg are still doing 
their usual good work and much praise is due both of these 
teachers. 

The usual Health Day exercises were held in the schools in 
May. In June seven pupils were graduated from the eighth 
grade, with appropriate exercises, and Educational Week in 
November was given recognition in the schools as usual. 

In December, in place of the usual pageant, a play was giv- 
en, entitled "A Christmas Carol," by Lucille B. Berry. 
Through the efficient work of the teachers and Music Super- 
visor, Miss Elizabeth Whittlesey, this play was well presented. 

Miss Catherine Austin, R. N., our school nurse, has re- 
mained with us this year after returning from Simmons Col- 
lege where she took a special course in Public Health Nursing. 

This year we decided to serve hot soup or cocoa at noon to 
those pupils who brought their lunch, for which, they are to 



38 



pay a small amount, to help cover cost of materials used. It 
has been successful, and we hope it will serve to bring to nor- 
mal weight, all pupils partaking of it who may be under 
weight. 

We ask that all reports be read carefully, that a better 
understanding of the work of the schools may be known: also 
the teachers would appreciate visits from any parent or guard- 
ian. 

Our superintendent, Mr. Knight, is always willing to coop- 
erate in any way possible when given the opportunity to do so. 

The Committee at this time wishes to extend to the citizens 
of Enfield its hearty thanks and appreciation for their cooper- 
ation and assistance in every way for the welfare of the 
schools, and the excellent support given by their generous ap- 
propriation and good will. 



INEZ L. BROYYiN, Secretary 



Report of Superintendent of Schools 



Members of the School Committee, 

Enfield, Mass. 

Ladies and Dr. Segur : 

In submitting this report of the work of the schools of Enfield, 
I will state as a matter of record and of educational interest, 
that this report is my twelfth annual report and the thirty-fourth 
report made by the superintendent of schools since Enfield be- 
came a part of a union district, and fixes the date of the forma- 
tion of the union as 1904. 

During the time that the schools of Enfield have been admin- 
istered by an agent of the school committee, known as the super- 
intendent of schools, many changes have taken place in the field 
of education, as well as in the realm of science and invention. 
Briefly, these changes or innovations include consolidation of 
elementary schools, health work in all schools, introduction of 
adult education, enrichment of secondary school curricula, the 
reorganization of the secondary into junior and senior high 
schools, and the use of educational standards and measurements. 
A minimum wage and a tenure-of-office law for teachers are to 
be included as educational milestones which have been set up in 
the past quarter century. 

Consolidation of schools has, perhaps, made possible more vital 
changes in the Enfield schools than any other single factor, be- 
cause it has brought about the offering of equal advantages to 
all who attend. The development of the social life of the child 



40 



and the stimulus of larger numbers in classes are obvious ad- 
vantages, apparent to the most casual observer. Consolidation 
has made possible the provision of playground equipment which 
would be too expensive to provide for several school centers'. 
Library privileges, lighting and heating, and sanitary facilities, 
too, must be included. Again, the radio, a part of the school e- 
quipment, gives the children the opportunity to listen to special 
programs and to learn to appreciate the best in music. The 
visits of the music supervisor and the nurse are made more easi- 
ly because of consolidation. Finally, the better organization re- 
sulting from centralization attracts teachers with increased 
training. We now have no teacher with less than four years of 
training beyond the high school. 

During the past year there have been offered to the children 
two features worthv of more than casual mention. I refer to the 
introduction by the committee of a "Travel Service". This con- 
sists of copies of letters written by a person who is capable of in- 
teresting children about conditions of today in certain European 
and Asiiatic countries and who is actually visiting these countries 
at this time. The children are enabled to get first-faand facts 
and observations before they have become stale, and the interest 
of both pupil and teacher is ample testimony that the service is 
valuable. 

The second feature is the warm lunch. This is the result of 
interest in the physical welfare of the children by the teachers 
and Mrs. Brown of the committee, who has given generously of 
her time and effort to the end that all the children and the 
teachers may have some warm soup or hot cocoa each day as an 
addition to their lunch. This is obviously an important adjunct 
to the welfare of all recipients and is appreciated by them. 

Before the close of school, the resignation of Miss Frances 
Singleton, whose home is in Northampton, was received. Miss 
Singleton was showing much promise as a primary teacher, and 
her resignation was received with regret. Miss Ruth Card of 
Pittsfield and a graduate of the four-year class of The Teachers 



41 



College at North Adams, was secured to fill the vacancy, and 
Miss Card is proving to be a worthy successor to Miss Singleton. 

In past years I have mentioned the stability of school attend- 
ance. Each year registers a reduction in the number of pupils 
in the town of Enfield. The census data given on another page 
is of interest, as is the fact that more children from Enfield are 
attending high school than was the case a year ago. 

In June a class of eight boys was graduated. Their parts 
were well given and were a credit to the schools of Enfield. 

I commend to the readers of this report the contributions 
made by Miss Catherine Austin, school nurse, and Miss Eliza- 
beth Whittlesey, who is supervisor of music. 

It is gratifying to learn of the scope of interest covered in the 
health work, various services and clinics sponsored by State, 
County, and private organizations. All minister to the child to 
the end that he may become a more useful citizen. 

Finally, whether or not this is the last report of the School 
Department of Enfield, I should be remiss if I failed to ac- 
knowledge the cooperation of all with whom I am privileged to 
work. To you as committee members, I again welcome the op- 
portunity of registering my appreciation of your service for. and 
interest in, all that pertains to the schools, 

Very respectfully submitted, 

HERMAN C. KNIGHT

Report of Supervisor of Music 



Mr. Herman C. Knight, 
Superintendent of Schools, 
Belcher town, Massachusetts 
My dear Mr. Knight: 

Work in music in the Enfield school has proceeded as usual 
during the past year, and has included carefully graded studies 
in the different phases of music education — tone production, ear 
training, rhythmic development, dramatization, appreciation, 
and the study of notation. 

During the spring term, interest and effort centered on music 
for the Commencement program and each grade and each stu- 
dent contributed his part to that program in June. 

The Christmas program included the performance of Dickens' 
play, "A Christmas Carol" and the singing of Christmas carols. 
Some of these were the old, familiar, much-loved carols — 'the 
very essence of Christmas — while some were less familiar, per- 
haps, but none the less beautiful. 

I have appreciated the untiring effort and assistance of the 
several teachers. Mr. Ciccone's excellent musicianship has been 
of inestimable value in providing inspiration and example to his 
students, while the careful and thorough foundation work by 
Miss Rugg, Miss Singleton, and Miss Card has made possible a 
high standard of performance. 

Acknowledgement is made of the friendly cooperation and 
support on the part of Superintendent Knight, Dr. Segur and 
Mrs. Brown. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ELIZABETH WHITTLESEY, 

Supervisor 



Report of School Nurse 



Mr Herman C. Knight 
Suferintefident of Schools 
Enfield, Massachusetts 
My dear Mr. Knight: 

I submit the following report as school nurse in Enfield for 
the year of 1937. 

Visits to schools 69 

Visits to homes 38 

Communicable diseases reported : 

Mumps 30 

Whooping cough 2 

Impetigo 2 

The pupils were weighed five times during the year by the 
school nurse. 

In the months of March and December dental clinics, under 
the auspices of the Hampshire County Chapter of the Ameri- 
can National Red Cross, were held. Reports follow : 
March 

Number of children examined 64 

Number found with dental defects 63 

Number receiving care from clinic dentist 17 
Number of children receiving certificates from 

clinic dentist 17 

Number of pre-school children attending clinic 1 



46 



Number of cleanings 16 

Number fillings, temporary teeth 20 

Number fillings, permanent teeth 40 

Number extractions, temporary teeth 7

Number of children found without defects at the 

dental examination .2 
Number of children receiving certificates from 

the dentist 16

Number fillings, permanent 26 

Number fillings, temporary 17 

Number cleanings 13 

Number extractions, permanent 2 

Number extractions, temporary 3 

Total number of operations 61 

The same number of children attended the dental clinic in 
March as did in December, but less work was required for the 
pupils in the last dental clinic. This unquestionably is due to 
health education along the lines of nutrition and early pre- 
ventative dentistry. 

The annual summer round-up of pre-school children for 
physical examinations by the school physician. Dr. Willard B. 
Segur. assisted by the nurse, was held in May. The report 
follows: 

Number of children examined 7 

Number of children without defects 5 
Number of chidren given 3 injections 

of toxin-anti-toxin 1 

Number of children vaccinated 7 



47 



Defects found: Cervical Glands 2 

Corrections made: Cervical Glands 1 

All the parents of the children attending the summer round- 
up 'were present and those whose children were found to have de- 
fects conferred with the school physician. Dr. Segur. concerning 
the defects found among their children. 

Health instructions are being given regularly to the pupils by 
the teachers, assisted by the school nurse. 

Report of the annual physical examinations given by the 
school physician. Dr. Segur, follows: 

Number of pupils examined 56 

Number of children without defects 32 
Defects found : 

Throat 9 

Nose 1 

Glands 12 

Nutrition 1 

Skin 1 
Corrections made : 

Throat 2 

Nose 2 

In October the annual Chadwick tuberculosis follow-up clinic 
was held. One pupil was examined at this clinic and her physi- 
cal condition was found to be so good that she was discharged 
from further follow-up 'Work. 

A new form of physical defect notice, recommended by the 
State Department of Public Health, has been sent to the parents. 
This type of form has the advantage of allowing the parents to 
secure recommendations from the nurse or school physician, Dr. 
Segur, and give the nurse information concerning what action 
on the defect found, the parents plan to take. Also, new forms 
for the physical defects of the pupils in each classroom have been 
given every teacher, so that they might better know the physical 
status of pupils. The individual pupil's physical record forms 



48 



furnished by the State do not permit a full report of the home 
visits made by the school nurse to the child. In order that there 
might be a continuity of health education in every Visit the nurse 
makes to various homes, a new type of report, the "Family Fold- 
er System", is being used. 

This year, Mrs. Inez Brown, a member of the School Commit- 
tee, has supplemented the lunches which the pupils bring 
from home with one hot dish. This courtesy which Mrs. 
Brown extends the pupils is of great value, since it improves 
the physical condition of these children. 

Many of the valuable improvements in the health program 
during the past year could not possibly have been achieved 
were it not for the assistance, the cooperation, and support of 
all individuals connected with the school personnel. 

Respectfully submitted, 

CATHERINE LUCILLE AUSTIN, R. N.
